Growing up with an appetite for sport and physical activity Jacob took his practice seriously, however consistent injuries and ineffective rehabilitation more often than not left him sidelined. These setbacks oriented him to seek a physical education, beginning with his Exercise Science degree. While completing his degree, Jacob came across Ido Portal’s work, finding the ideas and method a not so common-sense approach and an exciting pathway to continue as a student. As current online student of the Ido Portal Team, Jacob’s continued practice with the method has brought him to Perth to further develop his movement practice and community as a teacher at Modus.
